Krazhdji Poetry – The War of Art

Poetry frequently attempts that high-wire balancing act between the profoundly insightful and the profoundly pompous.  Krazhdji culture places a very high value on poetry.  Unfortunately, they don’t seem to balance very well.  Add to that the inherent difficulties caused by automated language translation, and you end up with poems like The War of Art:

“DIMENSIONS DIVERGE, EXISTENCE ENGORGES

ON THE FAT OF POTENTIAL FATE

SKEWING THE PLANES INTO THE PROFOUND

EXUDING MYTHICAL REALITIES, SPEWING POSSIBILITIES

BEYOND THE VEILED HAZE OF PERCEPTION

UNSEEN GLIMPSES OF NEVER LURK IN THE LIGHT

TANTALIZING THE ENTRANCED, WHO DREAM THAT

REALITY WEARS A NAME TAG”
